MEET OUR CHEF
Korean Culinary Master Woo Kim
Born in Korea in 1957, Chef Woo Kim discovered his passion for cooking in his early twenties, and he hasn’t stopped cooking since! He began his career working in restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, giving him valuable exposure to different cultures and culinary styles. While running his own restaurant with his wife in Seoul, Chef Kim dreamt of bringing Korean cuisine to the rest of the world. This dream eventually prompted his move to the United States in 2000, where he was able to share Korean food through his catering business to diners in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and beyond.
Dons Bogam owner K. R. Choi brought Chef Kim on as head chef in 2006, and he has been bringing traditional Korean cuisine to American palettes ever since! He loves to introduce American diners to traditional Korean flavors and dishes they may not previously have tasted, and takes pride in his ability to cater his native cuisine to appeal to each individual diner who he has the pleasure to feed.
